The writers begin the infographic in New York City, where their first detailed establishment is the White Horse Tavern, located in the borough of Manhattan and historically a favoured drinking spot of legends such as Dylan Thomas, Jack Kerouac and Hunter S. Thompson. Staying in the Big Apple, another Manhattan based bar that is included in the infographic is the Old Town Bar, and 18th Street joint with marble and mahogany interior that has been frequented over the years by Nick Hornby, Seamus Heaney and Billy Collins. Staying on this side of Atlantic, Havana’s El Floridita gets a worthy mention in the infographic, with the Cuban cocktail bar playing host to many iconic literary figures in its time ranging from Ernest Hemingway to Graham Greene to Ezra Pound.
The team at Assignmentmasters.co.uk cater not only to those interested in literary bars Stateside, but also to those near the United Kingdom, France, Spain and Russia. The famous Eagle and Child pub in Oxford is mentioned, a historical drinking hole in the city that was once the favourite cavern of J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis and Colin Dexter. In Spain and France, the infographic showcases both the Cerveceria Alemana in Madrid and Les Deux Magots in Paris, both culturally rich bars that have been visited through the years by the likes of Ernest Hemingway, Jean-Paul Sartre, James Joyce, Albert Camus and Bertolt Brecht.
The culture and history of Russia can sometimes feel very distant to the Western world, but the infographic brings a sense of familiarity by showcasing the Literary Café, a bar in Saint Petersburg that, just like the others mentioned across the world, housed some prominent writers including Dostoevsky, Pushkin and Saltykov.
Hopefully, by enjoying this infographic, you will be inspired to follow in the footsteps of some of these great literary figures, and indulge in a spot of literary tourism in whichever continent you choose. From North America to Europe and beyond, the possibilities are exciting and varied.
